Happy (sorta) New Year!

Hope everyone had a happy new year! Mine was spent in seclusion save a few sanity-preserving outings: NYE New Year's Eve was spent hunkered down on the couch, swathed in a Smurf-blue Snuggie with my computer on my lap. There was a very klassy orange juice and beer toast with FriendBoy at midnight before I got back to work and finally nodded off around 3am. How exciting! Quick tip: Do not try to use the bathroom while wearing...

We need a resolution

I don't do resolutions anymore. After years of failing to stick to the same ones (Exercise! Eat healthier! Save money! Travel!) I haven't given up per se, but let's just say I've moved on. However, this post from Chris Guillebeau prompted me to start looking seriously at setting--and planning to achieve--some goals. The first step is looking back at what happened this year--2009 was weird for a lot of people. I started Style Sample magazine, my...

An Editor’s Ramblings

I've been working my *^% off on the upcoming issue of Style Sample magazine only to have an uncooperative cover subject flake and not send photos. A great article was written (and it was difficult to get responses to the interview questions--I should have known then), four inside pages have been allotted, the issue comes out in a matter of days, and after repeated requests and multiple deadline extensions, I have no photos for...

What a happy friggin holiday

Hope everyone had a great holiday! I had fun spending time with the fam and giving and receiving gifts, including this lovely new Nikon D3000 that I have no idea how to operate (but thanks for the surprise, Dad!), a new TV and a TV cabinet from IKEA (thanks Mom!), which FriendBoy and I put together in record time. I'm telling you, trying to make 378 pieces of compressed wood and a smattering of screws...

Mo’ Beau

Foster kitty Beau is still with me, and it's getting serious. He's such a fun little guy--if I lay down, he'll curl up on my chest and fall asleep with his head on my shoulder like a baby. If I close the door to the bathroom or bedroom, a small furry paw inevitably appears under the door (this is extremely amusing for reasons I can't explain). If anything even remotely resembling a string moves just...

Dear Santa

I figured I'd better let everyone know what I want, just in case y'all have extra money lying around. Because, you know, so many people do these days. 1. Alexis Bittar arrow earrings I love the tough-glam vibe these give off. 2. Crush It by Gary Vaynerchuk and Art Direction & Editorial Design by Abrams Studio Motivate and create, baby! 3. Subscription to Lynda.com There's so much out there to learn, and I've found the video tutorials here...

The Big Switch

My apologies, y'all. Since the Maintenance Mode plugin refuses to work properly no matter how many times I un-and re-install it, you are going to be subjected to all of the ugly behind-the-scenes messiness this blog redesign entails. Just FYI, it will probably take a while since I'm working on the next issue of Style Sample magazine now. To make up for it, here's some better stuff to read/look at: [caption id="attachment_926" align="aligncenter" width="604" caption="The header from...
